Once you know the devil, the devil knows you…
Lionsgate has unleashed a spine-chilling trailer for Prey for the Devil, a new horror film from director Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism). Jacqueline Byers (Bad Samaritan), Colin Salmon (Resident Evil), Christian Navarro (13 Reasons Why), Nicholas Ralph (All Creatures Great and Small), Ben Cross (Dark Shadows), Lisa Palfrey (The Feast), and Virginia Madsen (Candyman) star in the film, which is set to terrorise theatres this Halloween season.
Here’s the official synopsis for Prey for the Devil, which was previously titled The Devil’s Light:
“In response to a global rise in demonic possessions, the Catholic Church reopens exorcism schools to train priests in the Rite of Exorcism. On this spiritual battlefield, an unlikely warrior rises: a young nun, Sister Ann (Byers).
“Although nuns are forbidden to perform exorcisms, a professor (Salmon) recognises Sister Ann’s gifts and agrees to train her. Thrust onto the spiritual frontline with fellow student Father Dante (Navarro), Sister Ann finds herself in a battle for the soul of a young girl (who Sister Ann believes is possessed by the same demon that tormented her own mother years ago) and soon realises the Devil has her right where he wants her… and it wants in.
Robert Zappia (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later) wrote the script for Prey for the Devil. Let it possess you on October 28th, and check out the trailer below!
